There is no denying that William Ruto, the deputy president, struggles with controlling his wrath.
He is so enraged that in State House in 2017, he made a threat to slap President Uhuru Kenyatta. Additionally, Ruto narrowly avoided striking Defense CS Eugene Wamalwa and his Interior equivalent, Dr. Fred Matiang’i.
Ruto’s rage appears to have roots much deeper than his time serving in the late Daniel Moi’s administration.
The family of former Eldoret North MP Reuben Chesire, who was the target of Ruto’s fury, verified this.
Alice Chesire, Chesire’s wife, acknowledged during an interview that Ruto did indeed hit her husband so hard that his eyes became red.
